Critic Reviews for Fighting Fear
A documentary that reaffirms the hard-drinking, hard-partying, hard-fighting values of good old fashioned mateship, as Bra Boys director Macario De Souza follows the friendship of two friends - one a Big Wave Surfer and the other a cage-fighter.
If you can wait until Fighting Fear hits DVD or TV -- it would have fared better as a one-hour TV special -- you won't be missing much.
Putting to one side its rough edges, Fighting Fear is another compelling story of contemporary Sydney culture.
With two compelling figures at its core, this engagingly honest and unapologetically positive doco makes for exciting and ultimately moving viewing.
The film has no real intimacy -- which makes us all outsiders -- and no apparent goal beyond cheering these guys on.
Macario De Souza (co-director of Bra Boys) and his editing team manages to balance the film's disparate elements of Joel Edgerton's restrained narration, fresh interviews, archival footage and re-enactments in a satisfying and exciting mix
